Fun to drive, car like handling, great flexible interior. We just love it, after 160000 on it it still runs well. It had some repairs, but amusingly it's original muffler is still there, the brakes were serviced only once. The least reliable side appeared to be electrical - rear view wiper, minor troubles with the door locks and front wipers. We did not have any major mechanical problems. I would estimate that all repairs costed me less than 3000 over the years. We consider a bench in a second row as an advantage we can not get from today's vans, as well as open-able rear view window - it helps a lot for hauling long things, like boards from Home Depot. Even in Minnesota we got just a few spots of rust after 15 years. If this van would be still on a market, we would buy it right away with no doubts at all. Unfortunately, they are mostly over-sized for us, or too small, like Mazda-5, and nothing in between. On a negative I would mention wind noise at higher speeds, so-so radio. It was purchased 2 years old having 18k on odometer for $17k -isn't that a value after all these years?
